  Summary: In philosophy today, most atheists and theists agree that the existence of an all good, all powerful God is logically possible.  Atheists then argue that while possible such a God is very improbable. Theists, in contrast, argue that such a God is not only possible but also very probable.  In this talk, I argue that both the atheists and the theists have got it wrong.  The existence of an all good, all powerful God, I will show, is logically impossible given the degree and amount of evil in our world.
